Hyundai has just revealed a brand new version of the smallest car in its lineup, the i10 city car. Technically an A-segment model, this has been increased in size to offer the biggest amount of space per Euro.
Though the official reveal will take place at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2013 in September, we still have plenty of data to look over. The new generation is a lot bigger: longer by 80 millimeters and wider by 65 millimeters. Since the wheelbase is only 5mm longer, most of the space has been created by moving the engine forward.

The all-new i10 also has a much bigger boot. At 252 liters with all the seats in place, it's basically on par with the Up! triplets but bigger than all its others class competitors.

There's no talk of engines yet, but Hyundai will likely stick with the existing 1.0-liter and 1.25-liter gasoline units and maybe stick in that 1.1-liter diesel for good measure.

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented: "New Generation i10 is another significant step forward for Hyundai Motor. Every aspect of the car has been designed and rigorously developed to meet the demands and needs of European consumers. New Generation i10 fully embodies Hyundai's 'true value' proposition, bringing higher levels of features and functionality than many buyers would expect to find in a vehicle of this segment."

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
